Costume Fever

October 3, 2011

Well, it's that time of year! HALLOWEEN! My most favorite time of year to sew. I have a couple ideas for a big costume giveaway, I'm just debating which one to choose. I think I've have one pretty much picked but I have a couple more points to debate. In the meantime, please enjoy some costume ideas that I'll be posting daily. Here's a really good one.

When Brian and I went to Halloween parties in our 20s I'd always fall short in the idea department. One year I was a butterfly another year a 70s roller skater....not really worth a second look. Although, Brian once went as Alex from A Clockwork Orange (with the eyelashes, bowler hat, codpiece, cane, suspenders, boots and all) which I thought was pretty clever. Wish I had a picture of that to show you:(

I saw this and immediately wished I had a Halloween party to attend. Mary Poppins and Bert! This duo was created by Keiko Lynn who has the BEST makeup tutorials! I love the whole cockney look of the chimney sweep costume and how Mary Poppins looks feminine and beautiful yet not slutty. When pulled off from head to toe, it's a great idea!

I read once that the book's author P.L. Travers demanded that any suggestions of romance between Mary and Bert be eliminated from the Walt Disney movie although some subtle hints of romance, however, did find their way into the finished film. I guess the romantic in me always wanted there to be something between Mary and Bert so, for me, this costume is sort of a nod to that as well;)

I love this costume duo too when I first saw it and immediately saved the image, too bad I could never convince my guy to dress up as Bert. I barely got him into a charlie brown t-shirt (with jeans) a couple years ago and now it's all he will wear for Halloween every year!
